DEAD DAYS Have Released Ferocious New Single "ROT"

Canadian Metalcore outfit Dead Days have returned with the in-your-face single “ROT,” their first of 2024.

With its punchy instrumentation, “ROT” sonically kicks you in the teeth from the get-go. It’s a sonic fusion of two distinct musical landscapes: the flurry of percussion and riffs brings the modern metalcore flair you’d expect from bands like Invent Animate and Currents, while the soaring chorus harkens back to The Poison-era Bullet For My Valentine in the best way possible. It’s a nostalgic aesthetic for the newer generation.

“Our song ‘ROT’ is about our inner breakdowns as functional human beings,” says vocalist Don Tuer. “The struggle to see the best in ourselves as we search for the right way to act around others. We want the easiest path to success by doing as little as possible, scratching and clawing for a way into the algorithm. We are all looking for the perfect ritual to save us from our day to day lives. Most of us don't even care who we hurt to obtain what we want, seeking out love when we don't even love ourselves. How can we get anywhere worth going without figuring that out first?”

“ROT” is the direct follow-up to 2023’s “Death Song,” which premiered via idobi Howl to overwhelmingly positive reviews. You can find it across streaming platforms or watch the official music video via the band’s YouTube channel.
